Suzanne Caryl Ferguson, formerly of Kerrville, Texas, passed away peacefully October 16, 2020 in Georgetown, Texas. She was born October 14, 1932 in Jamestown, New York to Russell and Rosalie Smith.

At the age of 18, Sue married the love of her life, Bill Ferguson, in San Antonio, Texas. After years of travel as a military wife and mother, the family settled in San Antonio. Sue and her late husband Bill Ferguson, retired to Kerrville and helped establish the Hill Country Scots Society. Sue loved her local community and expressed her love through her volunteer work at her local church and at Sid Peterson Hospital. She loved hosting her family and friends, where she entertained all. She mastered the game of "bitchy bridge" and quickly taught her friends and grands how to win. Sue loved traveling abroad and road trips throughout the Texas Hill Country. She had a creative passion for art and loved telling stories of BIG and small adventures (embellished) which always left the grands, nieces, nephews and great grandchildren wondering when the pirates would attack next. Sue is survived by her son Laird (Larry) Ferguson and her daughter-in-law Susi Ferguson of Georgetown, son-in-law David Darnell of McKinney, her three grandchildren Becca McMillan and husband Zeno of Ardmore Oklahoma, Lauren Bedwell and husband Jeff Bedwell, Josh Ferguson and fiancé Sara Verde and three great grandchildren: Rory McMillan, R.T. Bedwell, Molly Jo Bedwell and her many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by husband Bill Ferguson and daughter Bonnie Darnell.

If we had hand picked David's in-laws, we could not have done a better job. From the moment David and Bonnie got married, Sue, Bill and all the group became instant family. We had a lot of great times with them - many Thanksgivings, family celebrations and a great trip to Branson.
So glad we had the opportunity to take Sue to lunch several years ago on our way back to Dallas from Bastrop. David was with us, and it was just like old times.
Sue, Bill, Bonnie and a bunch of pets are up there having a great reunion. We miss them all.

There are so many great memories and stories - like the times Aunt Sue’s opinionated letters appeared in the Op Ed pages of the San Antonio Light. Or the story Mom told about how, during the War they went swimming at the coast, and took off the tops of their bathing suits and tied them to the fishing pier. Unfortunately when the tide went out they had an embarrassing run to collect them again! (Of course my mother didn’t always tell the truth.) Bill was a lucky man and struck gold when he married Sue! Don’t we all wish we could have been friends with those Smith girls even back then. Sue was a great person, lively, energetic, and a delight her whole life.

Sue was very special to Bob and me. In the mid 90's, I had a very serious and painful back problem and was unable to find a doctor who could identify the problem. During this time of uncertainty, Sue and Bill helped us to have a better life as we began working to find a solution.

As we got to know Sue better, we learned to appreciate her quick wit, imaginative and creative talents, her kindness and her joy for life and her love of the Lord. We will miss her but her spirit will remain in our hearts forever.

My favorite memory of Aunt Sue happened when I was about 16. Aunt Sue, Mom, and I were all driving in Aunt Sue’s car and she was weaving in her lane and chatting the whole time. Mom was white knuckling it in the passenger seat with her foot nearly through the floorboard from trying to put on the brakes. Suddenly Aunt Sue looked at me in the rear view mirror and said “Mandy, I want you to know I don’t normally drive like this. I’m just doing it because I know it scares your mother.” It was so funny! I’m sorry she’s gone. She is greatly missed.

Aunt Sue was always another mother for me. Always there when I needed her. She taught me so much about strength and dignity in the face of adversity.

I am so sorry for your loss and feel it deeply myself. I believe she is with God and He now sheds his peace, love , joy and grace upon her.

With all my love,
Noel Smith
